"Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the Divine." Ludwig van Beethoven


It is the laziest of all creatures,
It could eat and eat filet all the day long.
Investigative eyes is a feature,
And it will sing to you its forlorn song.

It will avoid you like the plague by day,
Skulking, running, bounding, from room to room.
By night it searches through the halls for its prey,
The hunted will meet its impending doom.

The whisper of whiskers against the door,
Tip-toe, pitter-patter, sneakily creeps.
All at once bounding across the floor,
Whoosh goes the paw across the mouse hole deep.

“Drat!” says the cat, missed the mark once again,
Once more the mouse hunt will have to begin.

When it seems like there’s no one left to run to in this empty world you can come to me I’ll be your shooting star. You can tell me your dreams I can’t promise to make them come true, but I’ll be there to pick up the pieces of your broken heart if your dreams happen to fall through…Unknown

i love it!!

Love, Life, Loyalty, and Living Long Like Legends. That's that L7.

Cats are my favorite haha, and this poem does them a much deserved justice. They've been underlooked by dogs for too long. The tone was aptly dominating, while the rhyming portrayed their grace and "playfulness". 5/5
